A chat with UIS Alumni Achievement Award Winner Wenguang Huang

The University of Illinois at Springfield recently presented its Alumni Achievement Award to Wenguang Huang -- a Chinese-born writer, journalist and translator who earned his masters degree at UIS in public affairs reporting.

Huang has written for the Wall Street Journal Asia, the Chicago Tribune, The Paris Review, Asia Literary Review, The Christian Science Monitor, and Harper’s magazine.

He’s the author of the critically-acclaimed memoir “The Little Red Guard” and several translations. In fact, he’s currently working on another one, with Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei.

WUIS public radio recently interviewed him in a November 16, 2015 report.
